Anyone have experience interfacing XBee with Blimpduino? I've been scouring the internet and found a bunch of people who've done it, but give out no directions on how. Mostly I'm looking for what pins need to go where... Thanks for the help!

I would post this question on the diydrones.com forums!

I tried that, I got pretty much zero response :(

You are past the point where you can not post links. Use that capability to post a link to the Blimpduino.

The XBee needs to be connected to +3.3V, Gnd, and two pins for TX and RX. If you want to talk to the XBee using the hardware serial class (Serial), use pins 0 and 1.

Otherwise, use any other two pins, and NewSoftSerial.

http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9132 is an XBee explorer that can hook directly onto the FDTI pins provided by Blimpduino.
